    It's a former 4-star hotel that you can stay at for ~£10. Best YHA I've stayed at.

    Fantastic hostel. Our double bed en-suite was literally like a hotel room :) the duty manager Andrea was an absolute delight. The room was mostly clean - only some mould around the shower head which is better than most hostels! Great location, fantastic value for money - highly recommend as this is easily the best place I’ve stayed at.

    Super clean and comfortable. It feels like you are staying in a nice hotel. Not much of a common area but the rooms and en-suite are very comfortable. They also have delicious food served there if you are looking for a meal. I loved it here and would come back again!

    This place was great! Clearly used to be an official hotel turned into a hostel. Very quiet, very clean, not a bad location.

    Rooms were excellent. Individual lights and powerpoints for each bed which is amazing when you're travelling. Ensuite in the room was great- felt like a hotel. Cages under the beds to lock valuables. Location is slightly out of the city but is in between town and Cardiff Bay so still good.

    Very Good

    The hostel was easy to find and you can park nearby. The reception staff could've been more welcoming, they seemed to be a bit aloof. The room was a really good size and the bathroom was clean with a lovely big shower. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to use. Food served by the hostel was a bit pricey by hostel standards but OK. Location was handy as the city centre and quay were both walking distance. We had a room at the back which was noisy in the morning with rubbish collection.

    Had a private room with ensuite which was surface clean but had a really bad smell. We didnt even want to touch the curtains because they smelt so bad. No bathmat or handtowel in the ensuite which made it hard to keep dry.

    Hot water wasn't working in the shower, the bed wasn't made properly, but the price represents okay value for one night's sleep.
